    Exclamation Re: Rules and SOP (By: Tom McIntyre)

    The operating rules for the NAWCC Encyclopedia have been published in the Tutorials section of the Encyclopedia.

    The articles are:

    Comments on the technical accuracy of the articles are welcome in the comments tab of the articles.

    There is a bug in ie8 with larger Javascript execution. The Encyclopedia software has been modified to work around the bug.

    It occurred when one clicked on the Java based tabs when viewing an article to post a comment, look at history, edit, etc.

    We can run the software without Javascript, but the performance is generally better with it enabled.

    That is not JAVA! Must be a syntax error.

    Gee Sam, the term Javascript is used twice to make it clear what the tool is.

    The file extension was .js, which I thought also made it clear.
